Mentoring and social collaboration

Pro-Bono Pro-Youth is an initiative of training, mentoring and volunteering that aims at improving the employability of unemployed young people at risk of social exclusion. The project also encourages social participation of young people in their communities. With this project, Helsinki España advocates for the effective realization of the economic, social and cultural rights of young people, as well as for the promotion of volunteering as a tool for social participation.

 

The project has been developed around three phases:

Training

formacionParticipants receive training sessions aimed at improving their skills, competencies and abilities that would allow them to find a job and/or become an entrepreneur. The content of the training sessions include aspects such as practical tools for job searching; tips for entrepreneurship; personal marketing; the use of social media for job searching; Eures Network; how to write a good resume and cover letter; and networking skills, among others.

Mentoring

Participants benefit from individualized mentoring sessions led by mentors from various professional backgrounds who advise and support the youth throughout the whole project. Each participant is assigned a specific mentor based on their personal profile and professional interests. The main goal is that mentors and the youth establish a solid relationship that would help to define and focus the professional career of the participants, expand their professional network and multiply their job opportunities.

Volunteering

foto-voluntariado1Young participants do volunteer work in nonprofit organizations in order to give back to their communities the time and dedication that their mentors gave them. The aim of this volunteering is to instill in young people a sense of social commitment and encourage their participation in their communities, reducing, thereby, their risk of social exclusion. Volunteering, besides being a mechanism for social participation, promotes values such as solidarity, faith in people and teamwork, helps young people regain their confidence, self-esteem and motivation.
